Tokyo To Bid for 2016 Games

Tokyo is preparing a bid for the 2016 Summer Olympics.

The Tokyo Metropolitan Assembly has approved a resolution to bid to be Japan's candidate city, and launched a preparation committee.

Tokyo last hosted the Summer Olympics in 1964.

The International Olympic Committee will make the final decision in July 2009.

Given that the 2008 Games are being held in Beijing, it is unlikely that another Asian city will be chosen in quite such a short timeframe.
